Happy Thursday Emerald Racing Club!
Just in case anyone missed the email. . .
Our field trip is Saturday, June 18 to Blue Ribbon Farm and Griffin Place, both located in Buckley.
Debbie Pabst of Blue Ribbon Farm sent along directions to their farm (below).
We hope to begin at 9 a.m. and spend a little over 1 hour at each farm. The farms are located right next to each other, so once we’re done at Blue Ribbon Farm we should be able to move to Griffin Place and start there around 10:30 a.m.
Mary Lou Griffin of Griffin Place sent a brochure on their farm which I’ve attached in this email. She will have plenty of coffee and bathroom facilities, too!
Should anyone get lost please call me on my cell (253) 335-2657 and I’ll guide you to the farm.
Look forward to seeing everyone!
From the west on highway 410 — about 1 mile outside of Buckley at traffic light, turn right on Mundy-Loss Rd. Continue through 4 way intersection to traffic light at 120th St E. — turn rt. Follow 120th st about 1/2 mile over 1st speed bump then turn right onto gravel driveway with electronic gate and follow signs to 27007 by bearing right at the tree. Pull all the way past the house and around the circular driveway.
From the east on highway 410 you will make a left at the Mundy-Loss traffic light from the protected left hand turn lane and follow the rest of the directions as above.
I spoke to Sharon Ross yesterday and, wouldn’t you know it, Archie Graham works Saturday morning at 9 AM! Sharon will text me immediately after the work and I will update everyone on how things went. Also, if anyone prefers to watch the workout instead of the farm visit, we understand. Just go to the area by the rail adjacent to the one-sixteenth pole, and you can watch the work with Larry and Sharon.
Speaking of the Ross’, Good Luck to Larry, Sharon and Jim & Mona Hour as Stryker Phd begins his march to an unprecedented third Longacres Mile in Sunday’s $50,000 Budweiser Stakes!
As for Archie Graham’s next race, Sharon said the weekend of June 25-26 is a strong possibility.
Also, Sharon said Archie Graham could use a few visitors at the barn. Time for some of us to get back there and feed the old boy some carrots!
